The purpose of the James Lind Alliance (JLA) Priority Setting Partnership (PSP) is to enable patients, carers and clinicians to come together on an equal footing to identify research questions, and then to prioritise these.
Each PSP consists of patients and carers, health and social care professionals and members of groups that represent all their interests. PSPs are led by a steering group with an independent chair from the James Lind Alliance. Collaboration of this sort, where patients, carers and clinicians work together set the research agenda, is extremely rare, but vital.
